The Merlet Liqueur C2 Cassis & Cognac is a wonderfully modern take on an old tradition - a drink known as Mêlécasse, a mixture of eau-de-vie and creme de cassis. This Cognac and blackcurrant liqueur combines the natural infusion of the fruit with the delights of Cognac.
The Creme de Cassis (as well as the Cognac), is made in-house by Merlet, and the blackcurrant infusion is blended with Cognac (a minimum of 60%), before a little sugar is added to finish. The end product is one that is wonderfully complex, with each component complimenting the other, bringing a delightful meland of new flavors to the fore.
Enjoy as a digestif over ice, or as an aperitif with a mixer of your choice.

Tasting review by Merlet Cognac:
Nose: First, the powerful fruitiness of blackcurrant. Then comes the Cognac with some Kirsch and Madeira notes.
Palate: Powerful blackcurrant followed by the flavors of blackberry jam.
With a traceable history dating back to 1850, the Merlet family have continued to produce cognac, alongside a continually growing range of other products, to the current day. Headed today by Gilles Merlet, his sons Pierre and Luc joined the business a few years back, bringing with them a new generation of enthusiasm and direction. Although the house Distillerie Merlet & Fils originally produced eaux-de-vie for some of the most prestigious cognac houses in the world of cognac, they are now famous in their own right, not only for their quality cognacs, but for their innovative range of other products that sell around the globe.
